London City Island is unique new riverside development and 12 acre neighbourhood - creating a Ďmini-Manhattaní - in Leamouth, London. Due for completion in 2016, it is adjacent to Londonís most exciting creative and commercial districts.

London City Island will be a dramatic new cityscape, rising at the point where the Thames meets the River Lea and set against stunning views of Canary Wharf and the City of Londonís iconic skyscrapers. It will see the creation of 1,700 new apartments, stunning al fresco spaces, waterside parks, vibrant new bars and restaurants, artist studios, boutique shops, school and exceptional private residentsí club.

The walkways and public squares are choreographed so as to offer frequent views of Canary Wharf, the O2 Arena and the nearby ecology park, but also to give the sense of being somehow enclosed within a vibrant, latter-day citadel. All of the Islandís residents are members of the exclusive City Island Social Club. With this comes access to a range of elegantly designed private facilities including a clubhouse, a gym, a screening room and a grocerís shop, as well as various sports facilities, pools and gardens. This is contemporary waterside living at its best.

The range of apartments available varies from one bedroom suites to expansive penthouses.

Views are spectacular in any season or at any time of day: the rivers Thames and Lea are a constant presence, as are sight lines of landmarks such as the dazzling Canary Wharf cityscape, the otherworldly dome of the O2 Arena, the epochal Olympic Park and the baroque shape of St Paulís Cathedral, a reminder that the historic City of London is just a short trip on the Docklands Light Railway.

The delivery of the footbridge will make City Island one of the best connected development sites in London with a 2 minute walk to its very own Jubilee Line and DLR station at Canning Town. 20 minutes to Bond Street, 15 to Westminster. The easy access to the Jubilee means one stop to the worldís most successful music venue at the O2 and two stops to Europeís largest retail centre, Westfield at Stratford and Queen Elizabeth Park.

The recent acquisition by Chinese developer ABP (Advance Business Parks) of 35 acres of land adjacent to City Airport at Albert Docks is a major coup for London with the Mayor Boris Johnson stating the multi-billion investment will make this location Londonís third financial centre.

Local Information

Leisure Facilities

Right across the water, the Greenwich Peninsula (reachable by the spectacular Emirates Cable Car or just one stop on the Jubilee Line) houses the vast entertainment complex of the O2 Arena as well as Ravensbourne College, the Greenwich Peninsula Ecology Park and public art that includes a 30-metre-high sculpture by Antony Gormley. The nearby Excel Centre is host to a constant stream of visitors who come for an event programme exploring everything from fine wine to fine boats.

Local Shopping

Itís a short trip to the vibrant nightlife and shopping of Shoreditch and Dalston, now home to several cinemas and countless galleries in all shapes and sizes. There are iconic and historic markets such as those at Spitalfields, Columbia Rd and London Fields. Thereís Stratford, with the Olympic Park and Westfield shopping centre, offering almost two million square feet of shops and eateries plus a seventeen-screen Vue cinema and a casino. And thereís Whitechapel with one of Londonís finest galleries as well as world-famous curry houses like Tayyabís and Lahore.

Excellent transport links mean City Island is very much part of the wider metropolis, with some of Londonís best places
to shop, work and play within easy reach. Major hub station Canning Town, located just minutes away across the new
Island Bridge, offers speedy access to central London and the Square Mile as well as mainland Europe via City Airport. This connectivity is powering City Islandís evolution into a magnetic destination for the capital, a maritime setting infused with the energy of Londonís key cultural quarters.
